    I have six BCM chicks, three are Greenfire Farms stock, and three are GF crossed with Little Peddler lines. The LP ones are generally darker and smaller than the GF ones. Any guesses on their sexes?

    GF#3 (pretty sure this one is a cockrel - hes the biggest and has a huge comb comparatively):

    LP#3 (I think this one is a pullet - he is the smallest and has a small comb)

    Any guesses? I'm thinking I probably have more roos than I want. but I'd like to see if I might be wrong!
    Thanks!

    I see all roosters except one. The last looks like a pullet.

    No, I'm pretty sure you have WAAY more roos than you want. Only the last bird pictured looks not even especially pulletish, but not a for sure cockerel either.

    I just realized auto correct turned food into food. Sorry about that lol.
